Few cosmetic conditions are surrounded by as many myths as cellulite. Some companies claim that cellulite can be treated with over-the-counter creams and ointments, but those products might not produce results for years. While cellulite is not a dangerous condition, it almost always requires professional treatments in order to produce long-term results. Developed by Cynosure, Cellulaze™ can eradicate cellulite in as little as 90 minutes with little or no downtime.
The most common misconception about cellulite is that it is nothing more than pockets of fat. Extra body fat is part of the problem, but the biggest contributing factor is the layout of the patient’s connective tissue. Just below your skin is threaded tissue that can divide pockets of fat. When the fat pushes through the tissue toward the skin, it then forms dimples and bumps. Staying at a healthy weight reduces a patient’s risk of developing cellulite, but it is not 100 percent effective.
The Ideal Cellulaze™ Candidate
Cellulaze™ is different than almost every other weight loss and toning treatment. The primary goal of this treatment is to erase bumps, dimples and other cosmetic issues caused by pockets of fat pushing through connective tissue. Those who are within a few pounds of their ideal weight often respond wonderfully to this treatment. Patients should also be dedicated to staying at a healthy weight for the rest of their lives.
A Closer Look at Cellulaze™
During your Cellulaze™ procedure, pulses of laser energy are delivered to your soft tissue. In addition to stimulating the patient’s skin, the laser also breaks apart the connective fibers that divide the pockets of fat.
When Over-the-Counter Products Are Not Enough
Some other cellulite treatments are effective, but most come with a few major drawbacks. Options such as creams and deep massages only treat the surface of the patient’s skin.
Cellulaze™ treats the root causes of cellulite instead of the outer layers of skin. Studies continue to show us that these lasers can increase the thickness and elasticity of a patient’s skin by as much as 25 percent. This is why the results generally continue to improve for up to two years.
Currently, around 93 percent of Cellulaze™ patients claim that they are satisfied or very satisfied with the results of this treatment. This unique procedure also allows patients to avoid the discomfort and other unwanted side effects of invasive surgeries.
